    Best CPU temp sensor probe to buy

    Thank you for the link. That's what I wanted to know and I appreciate your additional guidance as well. The Crosshair VIII hero is about as high-end as you can get. I just don't want a handheld device sitting on my case.
  2. Has anyone had any success in getting both m.2 slots recognized on this mobo? I've tried many settings in the BIOS to no avail. So I need to enable SATA even though my m.2's are not sata and I have no sata devices? Re M.2_1, the manual says, "For 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Processors, the M.2_1 supports PCIe 4.0 x4 and SATA modes M key design and type 2242/2260/2280 storage devices." Re M.2_2, the manual says,"For AMD X570 chipset, the M.2_2 supports PCIe 4.0 x4 and SATA modes M key design and type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices" Both my m.2's are "PCIe Gen 3x4" - but only the one in the _1 slot is recognized. Maybe this is a hint. Let's see . . . .
  3. If you decide to use a thermal pad: 1. Make damn sure it is the same size as your CPU. Too small and you'll fry the CPU. 2. They're VERY slippery. Get a teeny-tiny mirror on a pole or something so you can check to confirm that the pad hasn't slipped out of position from placing the fan. 3. Carbon pads are electrically conductive. Do not mess with them near your motherboard unless the power is turned off and capacitors discharged (as best you can).

    Um I'm sorry. All I want is the probe that will connect to a port on the motherboard, or to a small, *discrete* external display. I'm not really looking for a separate hand-held tool.

    I need something that is OS independent. In any event, if anyone knows what to buy I'd me most appreciative.

    Higher end motherboards have a small hole in the bottom of the motherboard into which one many install a "k type thermocouple" per Gamers Nexus. I don't know what this means or what to buy.

    No sir, I'm looking for whatever sensor goes to the CPU from the hole in the back of the motherboard.
  8. I want to buy a CPU temperature sensor/probe for my new Crosshair VIII hero. But I can't find much info online, reviews, or even how-to's. Can someone recommend something?

  10. Is this still true (2019-07). How can I do this? (OpenSUSE, new user, Ryzen 9, NVidia 2080Ti.)

    Provided no one with experience disagrees with me, I understand that if you're not going to overclock just use the stock cooler that comes with the CPU. It's pretty enough.
  12. . . . and . . . voilà!
  13. So . this is the correct cable - 8 pins on the PSU side and 6+2 and another 6+2 on the card side. It's a Y connector - 8 pins branching out to 16. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) Thanks!
